Good news thank you all, very re-assuring and informed comments!

I know a guy who bought one of the office-condos in here. Hopefully I finagle a tour at some point.

The straight section allows for some nice transitioning from the Victorian houses below. Apart from being easier from a technical perspective, it's also nice to have separation between the styles. It's like the building sprouted this other building on top of it. It will allows the restored houses to be read as they were meant to be instead of being reduced to a facadectomy.
 
From today. Some glazing has been installed.

Few more from yesterday; really interesting lines and curves, the magnitude of which are much more obvious in-person.

We had some issues with photo uploading this morning. If you'd like to give those a try again, @ADRM, it will work now.

Oh, weird—I can see them on my page, but assuming by that comment others can't; in that case, here we go again:

The curved glazing is amazing! This is going to be stunning when completed.

Incredibly good! Another home run by HPA. This is partly why I'm so excited about Massey. Some similar elements, especially with the curved aspects (although perhaps more with the overall white cladding than glass in Massey). If Massey's curvaceous glass podium emulates this quality, it'll be a stunner.

HPA are truly the masters of curved glass. They're doing some of the best work in the city right now. This building is going to be magnificent, and I can't wait to see the King Portland Centre, which I expect will look quite similar to this, but on a larger scale.

That, and I can't wait to see the Well rise.

Besides the convex and concave curved glass, HP has also done a wonderful job on the fritted pattern in the glass.
